11 Creative Ways Your Thumbs Can Prevent Texting While Driving

Texting and driving is a major cause of accidents, yet 1 in 4 teens still does it. Keeping your friends focused on the road can be tough, so DoSomething.org created the Thumb Wars campaign, which encourages young people to make and share Thumb Socks with their friends to reduce texting and driving.

Yep, these lil' protective coverings for your thumbs remind others not to text behind the wheel. Here's how 11 DoSomething.org members got super creative while keeping their friends super safe.

1. Turning themselves into really awesome cartoons! It's called pop art and all the cool kids are doing it.
